"Chicken" and dumplings.

When I was a little kid, I really liked chicken and dumplings. Especially the dumpling part. What can I say? Carbs = yum.

I have a great faux chicken gravy already - actually the first time I had it, I thought my boyfriend was trying to pull a fast one on me. But I'm not sure how to pull off the chicken and dumpling part. If Bisquick is ok to use, would soy milk work? I can't imagine why it wouldn't, though it failed me terribly when I tried to make instant pudding.

And the chicken. I'm not too picky about this, because I'd probably be happy with dumplings and gravy, but I was wondering if any of you know of a good chicken substitute that would work well. I'd either be in the Chicago area or Boston when I made this, so I have a lot of stores available to me.

Oh, and I've seen the Chicken and Dumpling mix by Dixie Diner and I don't think I want to go that route. I've never ordered anything by them and it's kind of expensive to just throw caution to the wind and try it. If you've had it and loved it, though...

Thanks!

corn muffins

since it is very snowy and i got to wake up late, i made corn muffins. i've been a vegetarian for a while but am slowly assimilating to veganism, so i don't have any sort of egg replacer besides bananas, which i didn't like the thought of in corn muffins. i was looking for a recipe without dry egg replacer online, but found this one, with blueberries. this is the adapted recipe i used, from here:

Broccoli and Rice Casserole

When I was growing up, I used to eat my mom's broccoli and rice casserole all the time. When I went vegan, that was one of the things I had to give up, and it was one of the things I missed most of all. I've been working on a vegan version for a while, and I think I've finally got it figured out. It still isn't an exact science, but I have a basic recipe.
